The Story

My name is Jacqueline. I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I have no support from my family and little to no support in the town I was born and raised. My community and government are not supportive. The support I have are other chronically ill and disabled friends who, also, have trouble with support and most especially financially.

Losing the ability to walk is practically inevitable with my genetic condition until a cure is discovered. To retain any ability I have or will have in the future I need to have the assistance of a wheelchair. One I am able to lift and carry.

I have exhausted my resources and I have reached out to everyone I am able to who can help. I have no support in my everyday life physically. I do not believe that because I am inflicted with an incurable illness, I should be forced to lie decomposing alone in bed for the rest of my life.

I am to a point where the only person who can help is ME. I will never give up my fight to live as manageable of a life as anyone in the world deserves. I need the ability to raise my strength, so I can continue to fight for justice and equality for those, alike me, who have trouble being heard or who are stuck laying lifeless in their bed.

I love you. I'm here for you. 
Regardless of whether or not you can help monetarily, I am here for you and I love you.

Hello friends,

I'm sorry. I've been having a very difficult time surviving. I hope this finds you well.

I've found the perfect chair for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and myself. I'll post pictures with the prices. It is the most lightweight chair available. For me to be able to carry and lift it myself without suffering from too many subluxations and dislocations. 

I am doing very well. Despite all of the terrible energy that surrounds me. Harrassment from family and friends. Little to no physical support. I'm not at all discouraged. I'm actually pressed to fight harder. Against my opposition, falling apart. I will hold fast ;) pun intended. 

There is hope. I believe someday there will be no need for a wheelchair and head to toe bracing for the sufferers of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I'll never give up hoping or fighting.

All my love,

Hello darling loves,

I'm overwhelmed with gratitude. I've found the chair that will best suit me and I'm almost to my goal! Thank you all so much!

I'll post all I can regarding this fundraiser. For the time being I am doing my best to vindicate my cousins life and petition to get the cause of death investigated. She was disabled and not receiving the proper support she required. She wasn't under continuous care and my 'family' refuses to let me cross check her prescriptions. I will do whatever I have to. Those of us who are disabled deserve to have our lives fought for. ESPECIALLY when we do not have the ability to do so ourselves.

I love yous.
This means the world to me!
